Thread: Did Packman's opensuse 11.3 repo change? Is it down?

  1. #1

    Default Did Packman's opensuse 11.3 repo change? Is it down?

    This has been happening for about a week. When I run the updater applet (or when it runs on its own), I get the error:

    PackageKit Error repo-not-available: File '/repodata/repomd.xml' not found on medium 'http://packman.unixheads.com/suse/openSUSE_11.3/'

    OK, apparently unixheads died: Where is the Packman repo? | Unixheads, stuff that matters

    The repo formally known as packman.unixheads.com is officially retired.
    So now my questions:

    1. How do I switch all my packages from unixheads over to something else (and what do you recommend I use?)
    2. Is it possible to set mirrors for package repositories, or do I have to choose just one at a time?

    It seems that this particular mirror is down and You need to change it.

    packman.unixheads.com down for the count

    Here's a script I wrote as a work around.
    updaterepos - skipping repos that are down and allowing multiple urls

    Default Απ: Did Packman's opensuse 11.3 repo change? Is it down?

    I can not find this repo URL. Try to remove it and install
    Code:
    su
    Code:
    # zypper addrepo -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/11.3/packman.repo
    Code:
    # zypper refresh

    Will this properly switch packages over to that? I have packages where the provider is that packman repo, can I just remove it and add a diff one?

    The provider won't change, only the mirror. Using the script I linked to is easier and won't change any other property except the URL. By removing/adding a repo, you might change some properties - like autorefresh and keeppackages (if you ever keep the packages locally). However by removing/reinstalling packman to another mirror, you won't change the vendor. So whatever you do, no need to worry.
